About the event

The Spring Equinox is happening this year on March 19th at 9:06 PM.  This is the moment that the Sun moves into ARIES, the first sign of the zodiac and  represents The East in the Medicine Wheel.  Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign, this is an initiating energy - and combined with the Equinox portal, this is a very powerful time for new beginnings, new  inspirations, and for planting seeds of what you want  to create for the coming year. It is a time of enjoying and celebrating  new life, fertility, and rebirth! Aries represents the Self, the I AM  presence, it is passionate, confident, and very much a leader, not a follower!  It is bold, dynamic, and full of vitality.   As the first of the fire signs, it is all about action, can even a  little impulsive, but definitely about making moves and going after what  you want!  We will harness this energy and plant these seeds deeply  into your psyche to cultivate the life you dream  of.


At this time on the Planet it is time to bring the indigenous rituals back into our everyday life.   When we do ceremony, we receive great healing and also provide much needed healing to our earth, our mother.

A despacho is a prayer bundle or offering.  It is an ancient Andean  ceremonial practice of making offerings  to the mountains (Apus), Mother Earth (Pachamama), and other spirits of  nature in reciprocity, reverence, and thanksgiving.  It is an act of  love and a reminder of the connections we share with all beings,  elements, spirits, and sacred places.  For hundreds  of years, the Laika (high shamans or wisdom keepers of the Q’ero  lineage of Peru) have used the despacho ceremony for a wide variety of  occasions – births, deaths, as an expression of gratitude, to heal  physical and emotional ailments, to restore balance and  harmony, or when there is a specific request of the spirit world.  The  despacho ceremony takes participants into ritual space and operates at  the level of the soul.  Similar to a mandala or sacred creation, the  despacho holds symbolic elements and the prayers  of the participants. As the elements are added to the despacho, the  vibration of the participants and the room raises. The despacho becomes a  living prayer that brings energy shifts and great healing!

Suggested  offerings include chocolate, sugar and sweets for Pachamama and the  Deva kingdom (they love  jelly beans and all the bright colors), corn and/or other grains, coca  leaves (I will provide these), flowers, sacred incenses, paper (or  “play”) money if you want to call in abundance, salt, feathers, beans,  colorful yarns, and any other item that is significant  to the occasion. If someone in your life requires healing, you can  bring a picture of them to put into the bundle. Etc. 

Bring anything you  feel called to include.
